Crockpot Chicken and Vegetables

I am going to upfront today and say that I am not 100%. I have spent the last few days caring for two little ones with many nights sitting up rocking and loving on and snuggling. My little ones were so kind to wear me out and to bring me down. I have spent the last couple days with a terrible headache and an extremely upset stomach. Thankfully, this is the first time in awhile that my body has shut down like this and I owe that to Chiropractic care, thanks babe, and the way we live our lives! (More to come!)

Do not worry -- I did not spend my sick day cooking in the kitchen. Here is a recipe that I made on Sunday! :) 

I love cooking whole chickens or chicken fryers in the crockpot! It is simple and you are left with a crockpot full of wonderful broth. 
The Chicken -
1 Chicken Fryer
enough water to cover the chicken
spices, whatever you fancy!

Cook the chicken in the crockpot all day on low. 5 - 10 minutes before you are ready for dinner pull the chicken out and let cool. Take off the skin and debone the chicken.

Was that hard!?!? :)

As for the vegetables
I roasted Brussels, again!!! :) My boys and I just can't get enough!

The other mixture is zucchini and broccoli. Saute in very little coconut oil and coconut aminos* (my new FAVORITE!!!) Start with the broccoli. Saute for 5 minutes then add the zucchini and then add the coconut aminos.

* I have been asked about Coconut Aminos. They can be found at Whole Foods or online. Coconut Aminos is a soy sauce or braggs replacement. Soy free, Gluten Free and Dairy Free!!! You will love it!


  1. Can I ask what aisle you find the Coconut Aminos at in WF's? I want to try some but never know where to look!

  2. Coconut Aminos can be found in the Asian section. It is right next to the Soy Sauce or Braggs Aminos.

  3. 3 Researches REVEAL Why Coconut Oil Kills Waist Fat.

    This means that you literally burn fat by eating Coconut Fat (including coconut milk, coconut cream and coconut oil).

    These 3 studies from big medicinal magazines are sure to turn the traditional nutrition world around!
